Podere i Poggi is a restored villa with the utmost care by the owners, who have conceived it as their special refuge in Tuscany. The materials used for the restoration are of high quality and the furnishings are a mixture of elegant and modern. Large windows illuminate the rooms, from which you can see the landscape all around, making each window a typical painting with Tuscan landscapes.
The property enjoys a privileged position: it is only 3 km from Cetona, one of the emblematic historic centers of Tuscany, where it will be a real pleasure to get lost after a relaxing day in the pool.
From here it is possible to visit the nearby Val d’Orcia, a Unesco heritage site, and all the most famous towns in the south of the region such as Montepulciano, Sarteano and Pienza. Also located on the border with Umbria, you can reach Città della Pieve and Lake Trasimeno in just over 40 minutes.
The property is equipped with private parking spaces within the enclosed area, which can be accessed through an automated gate. The villa is accessed via a short white road of about 300 meters in excellent condition.
As soon as you enter the property, there is an avenue, which will lead you to the hill where the villa is located. Entering through the main door, one immediately glimpses the configuration of the ground floor, which has a characteristic quadrangular structure, entirely open and which connects all the rooms accordingly: a large modern kitchen, which extends over the entire left side, a relaxation area with TV and large sofa in linen, and continuing on the right side of the house, another lounge area with sofa and armchairs that develops around a magnificent open fireplace.
The kitchen has a large central island with 2 stools, and offers enough space to cook delicious meals for a group of 8 to 10 people. The kitchen leads to a comfortable and well shaded outdoor pergola, furnished with table and chairs for all guests, a professional barbecue and a relaxation area with sofas.
All the bedrooms of the villa are located entirely on the upper floor, which is accessed by a large and elegant parquet staircase. At the end of this, on the right, there are two mezzanine bedrooms and a nice bathroom with a large shower and window through which plenty of light enters. These two bedrooms have respectively a double bed and two separate beds. Still on the same floor, in the left wing, there are two other very spacious double bedrooms, also equipped with mezzanines. The main bedroom has a comfortable en-suite bathroom with a spacious shower and window, and in the loft there are 2 single beds, making this room a real family room, excellent for a young family. The mezzanine of this room also has an additional relaxation corner with a sofa for reading.
The second bedroom, also a double, has a mezzanine with wardrobe and its own bathroom immediately adjacent to it, also with a large shower.
The lush land of the property allows guests to enjoy the various corners, with the view overlooking the surrounding countryside. You really have the feeling of being in a classic Tuscan setting, a few km from services, but at the same time isolated in peace and immersed in the green landscapes of this unique region. In a reserved area of the land, a natural terrace finished with terracotta flooring and iron protection, surrounded by fresh plants, gives the possibility of an additional corner to enjoy a drink at sunset.
The swimming pool, a few steps from the property, furnished with wooden sun loungers with cushions and two umbrellas, is completely private and has a nice spacious lawn where you can also enjoy some outdoor games. The pool water is with salt filters, and allows pleasant chlorine free baths.
Not far from the swimming pool, the owner has built a small vegetable garden which in the summer season offers vegetables and aromatic herbs for guests to use. There are also 4 bikes for use by clients.
